Abstract

The hypothesis that " roches moutonnées " are mainly preglacial weathering remnants, slightly changed by glacial and glaciofluvial erosion, is examined. Examples showing preglacial bedrock features are given from southern Sweden and the island of Bornholm, areas of less intensive glaciation. Forms resembling roches moutonnées also occur in non-glaciated areas like East Africa and Australia. Lithological variations and joint systems play an important role in the formation of " roches moutonnées ". The joints are older than the glacial erosion
